March class layout, and some fave pics from the week....

so first is the march layout class.... our first class was last night and was a great class.... hope you all enjoyed it! The next class is next Thursday , both classes sold out so if you are interested in taking classes make sure you check my blog regularily....

I also wanted to mention that the "SPRING THING" is sold out! I am so excited for this to come! I do have a waiting list started so if you want to be on that please let me know!
Here are some of my favorite pictures for the week.... The first one is Sharla and her friend, Megan's feet, after they had finished painting the bathroom last week.... and yes they went all through the house before they realized that there feet were everwhere.... they did clean it up athough and they both did such a great job of the bathroom... can't wait until it's all finished, maybe one more week! Yayyyyyy! Rob has been working on getting the bathroom done in the basement and I don't like painting so I was so glad that they wanted to do it!

the last picture is another fave! Shalaina and her friends! i love it when Spring finally arrives and they can hang out outside..... so fun!

For those of you that are submitting a layout for OLW don't forget that the deadline is tonight! go over and check it out, it is so much fun! My word is up on Wednesday so make sure you check that out too! Have a great long weekend everyone!

WORD UP # WHAT???? oh yea it is # 22....

unreal that we are already at this number... I know I say it everytime and every week I can hardly believe where the weeks have gone but here we are almost the middle of March! Love it, it's feeling more like Spring already... although this is Calgary and I know that we aren't quite done with the white stuff but who knows! So for the word this week it is....
FIND...I love this word! The first thing that came to me was FINDING MR. RIGHT! I know sounds kind of Cheesy but I loved that... Rob and I just celebrated our 23rd anniversary and there are some days that I can hardly believe that we have been married that long! When we met and starting going out i was really young..... i mean really young but we won't get in to those details right now..... we did meet at the local Mac's store though and there were so many people that said ummmmmm It will never work...... she's so young...... well, Looks like we made it........23 years later this is our STORY....

So for those of you that are up to a challenge, a little prompt to get you scrappin.... go and check out OLW.... there are some amazing girls over there, love them all!
Here is my layout for this week!

and here is another layout I did.... this one was lots of fun! I am totally in love with the 6 x 12 size...

Have a great day everyone, I am off to clean my house!

Long overdue....
First things first is my OLW layout.... not sure where last week went but finally am getting to a long overdue blog post!

The word this week was Ronda's choice..... the word 'TiME'... love this word and you can do so much with it but for me it was taking TIME for me.... I don't do it very much, it just seems like life gets in the way and well you all know how that goes....
Sharla and I went and did a phot shoot for some friends of ours that just had the sweetest little baby girl.... It was a little bit stressful just because it is one thing to take pics of your own family just fooling around but it is another to take them of other people.... anyways I am happy with the way they turned out, actually it turned out to be lots of fun! Here are a few of my faves:
I am working on cleaning up my studio today like it is a total right off and then maybe I can get some work done too! I will see some of you for the class on Thursday night! Have a great week and don't forget to check out the Technique over at OLW on Wednesday!
One more thing for those of you that haven't joined in for the challenges they are so much fun so come and play!
